Obese people who lost weight had to dramatically alter their diets and
exercise a lot more to keep from gaining back the weight, a new study
by researchers at the National Weight Control Registry concluded. The
finding contradicted experts who contended that only small lifestyle
changes were required to keep weight off. Stroke patients who listened
to a few hours of music each day soon after their strokes improved
their memories significantly, says a Univ. of Helsinki
study. The study examined 60 people who recently had a stroke of the
middle cerebral artery. The group that listened to music for 3 months
showed a higher level of recovery in their verbal memory. The
scientists say the music may have helped activate the brain areas
related to speech functions.
